The hubs and I have been on vacation this past week. It's been wonderful. A short synopsis of what we've been up to (pictures will follow when I get my USB cable from upstairs...I'm too lazy right now)
Sunday - Waterpark with Auntie Bridget and Uncle Joe. Lexi had a great time...fell asleep on the lounge chair about 3 and slept till after 4. She looked so cute!
Monday - Holiday party at the IL's. Lexi swam for the first time all by herself (she had swimmies on her arms!) and loved the freedom!
Tuesday - Poker night for me. Took 3rd
Wednesday - Zoo with the grandparents. Saw the lions get "fed". Though it was more like a snack.
Thursday - Lexi's first baseball game...Chicago White Sox vs. Minnesota Twins. We lost. Lexi loved it though. She received a certificate for her first game from guest relations!
Friday - Date night with the hubs. Dinner at our fave Italian place, movie (Bridesmaids)...then we decided to go to the casino and play some Hold Em in their poker room. I tripled up. It was a great night!
Saturday - RELAX AT HOME
Today - laundry, grocery shopping, swimming at the IL's later, getting Lexi's stuff ready for school*
*We lost our childcare on Monday's...my MIL got a job (good for her, bad for me)...so we had to find something FAST. Luckily I had 3 options. 2 centers and 1 home daycare. We went to look at all three on Tuesday. We threw out one center (HELLO $100 registration fee, and just felt like it was a kids kennel...no warm fuzzies) almost immediately.
The home daycare option was the least expensive ($25 for the day)...but Lexi would only be with one other child, would have to sleep in a pack n play in a room alone, and there is no backup if this lady or her kids get sick.
The center we chose was reasonable ($42 for the day). Lexi would be with about 8 other kids...they sleep on cots...and it's more of a school setting. That was the biggest factor. Since she starts pre-school next year, we want to get her ready for the school setting as much as we can. So she starts tomorrow. I think she'll love it. At least I hope she does!!!
